This is Management-style case supervision, a reflection of what happens outside of the supposed sanctity of a session. The modus operandi? Break down the individual to as close to nothing as possible without vegitizing him or killing him off--even though that sometimes happens. The RPF is the OT-7 of management tech. Now he's setup for the OT-8 bognition which, from recollection of my reading on internet, is "Now that I know who I am not, I am ready to find out who I am." During such a breakdown you could expect a reversal of case condition and the need for routine sec checking.
I have always been amused over the duplicity of these upper levels. Beginning with the one-size-fits-all bridge, the fundamentals of auditing are little by little thrown out the window. Whereas evaluation on the lower levels in a no-no, it is the rule in upper levels. The pre-OT is specifically told what to run and how to run it. Whereas Hubbard has stated in the C/S Series that as the being progresses up his bridge, he begins to feel wonderful, more and more like himself, and he will so state--because he IS more himself. I will attest to that being true as observed from 3 sides of the meter, auditor, pc, C/S. Apparently, that type of progress was found to be an undesirable case condition.
But lo and behold, when he completes OT-8 he only knows who he is not!?
What a crock 'o shit!
Excellent posts by Ted and Helluva!! I really enjoyed reading those and thought that they both made excellent points!
